Apple to Let Parler Back Into App Store
After being removed from Apple’s app store back in January, the alternative social media platform Parler is finally returning.
Parler was removed from the Apple app store and Google Play store, and lost hosting via Amazon Web Services following the January 6th capitol “siege” amid allegations that it was planned through their platform. There was never any evidence for those claims – but there is evidence there was planning done on Twitter and Facebook, two platforms that obvious faced no consequences for that.
Of course, January 6th was just a Trojan Horse to justify censorship that the left needed any excuse for, and now Apple has succeeded in forcing Parler to make certain changes to their platform.
As The Post Millennial reports:
The big tech company has determined that the social media app will be allowed back on the App Store. Apple said that Parler had made necessary improvements to their app that will allow the social media platform, which is popular with conservatives, to be better able to detect and purge “hate speech and incitement,” according to CNN.
On March 31, @SenMikeLee and I sent a letter demanding answers about why Apple removed Parler from the App Store.
🚨Today, we received a response: Parler will be reinstated on the App Store. Huge win for free speech. pic.twitter.com/FQBDSSSFGk

Apple sent a letter to Congress on Monday letting them know about their plans to allow Parler to be reinstated in their store, and for users to restore their downloads of the app. In the letter was sent to Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) and Rep. Ken Buck, it was revealed that Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” Apple told Parler that these changes would allow their return to Apple’s iOS. It read that “Apple anticipates that the updated Parler app will become available immediately upon Parler releasing it,” CNN reports.
The crazies over on Twitter are predictably hysterical over the news.
Parler has made its entire product around allowing anyone to say anything.
Is this now not the case? And if it isn’t the case, how does the App Store enforce their policies moving forward? https://t.co/fA7eI9VJPs

Hey @Apple, why are you letting Parler back on App Store knowing full well they promote terrorism and are a white supremacist hub with ties to Russian money? That’s gross.

Prior to January 6th, Parler had made fifty referrals to the FBI regarding unrelated violent content on their platform, proving that they already were monitoring extreme content.
Parler is currently suing Amazon alleging contractual offenses, as well as deceptive and unfair trade practices, seeking unspecified monetary damages. Parler claims to have been valued at $1 billion prior to being pulled by AWS.
